The Fat Salmon Open Water Swim is an annual 2-race open water swimming competition held in Lake Washington in Seattle, Washington. It is one of America's Top 100 Open Water Swims.

It is a point-to-point swim that starts on the West side of Lake Washington, at a Seattle Public Park called the Day Street Boat Ramp. It is located essentially underneath the I-90 Bridge. Swimmers enter the water in waves of 30-50 at a time. Waves will be approximately 10 minutes apart. The race is a straight shot North from the I-90 Bridge approximately parallel to the Lake Washington shoreline to Madison Park Beach.
